We now have a brand-new football area. Fully levelled, drained and re-seeded.
This summer, we are pleased to welcome Maresfield Dynamos junior Football Club. They have been enjoying using the pitch here for their Saturday morning training sessions.
A winter programme of matches with the Dynamos and other local teams is in preparation.
Thanks to a grant we received from Wealden District Council, we have purchased some goals, corner flags and a line marking machine and paint. So we are fully kitted up and ready for the 2018-19 season.
The Village Fayre Committee are proud to be hosting the second Big Village Party at the Playing Field.
The Party will start at 4pm on Saturday 30th June and will finish at Midnight. Our aim is to embrace the young and old of the
village and to help with this the School will be curating a festival area for the young which will be running from 4pm.
After 3 brilliant years bringing you the Village Fayre from Tinkers Park, we bid a fond farewell and are enjoying settling back into our original home at The Playing Field in the heart of our village.
The Playing Field is a beautiful setting and its ours, the Villages’ and we love it! It’s got loads of space for us to run around and offers a stunning outlook for the Marquees.
Like last year we will bring you fantastic live music from 5pm with a diverse line up, again something for all tastes. Stay in touch here and on the Village Website for the confirmed line up announcements. A full schedule with timings will be
published shortly before the festival.
Our aim is to provide a range of delicious food and drink using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. There will be a delicious barbecue, with gourmet burgers and salad.
Vegetarian options including pesto and halloumi burgers, a vegetarian curry and more! Meal tickets will be
sold at the event or before with a discounted price for groups/ families.

The Annual Bonfire Celebrations are organised by The Playing Field Committee with the support of volunteers. It takes place at The Playing Field and is one of our annual fundraising events. Residents meet at the New Inn to collect torches and then form a procession to the Field. On arrival at the Playing Field all torch bearers are invited to circle the Bonfire prior to the traditional Bonfire Cry being recited, then, the torches are cast onto the fire. An organised fireworks display follows.
